Help Mai Walk Her Way of Ambition

Gazze Destek Association
Palestine

Story


My name is Mai and I am from the north of Gaza in Palestine. I am a software developer, mentor, sister, and daughter. I studied Computer Science at Al Azhar University and graduated top of my class. In 2018 I got selected to join the Gaza Sky Geeks Code Academy where I sharpened my skills in full stack web development. After the Code Academy, I landed an internship with Google for Startups, where I remotely joined a Google-backed startup team in London for several weeks. It was awesome and built my confidence as a developer who can work across cultures and time zones. I joined UNRWA who is collaborating with UNICC, where I’m the youngest developer in a team of diverse, international, tech professionals. You can hear more about my experience in this video that GSG made about the internships.

I am ambitious, empathetic, and driven and I am just getting started in building a beautiful life and career. One day, I will found a startup that supports people with disabilities.

I have been waiting many years to have an electric wheelchair, which I got recently as a donation from a local organization. Today, I am raising money because I would like to install an elevator in my home. I live on the third floor of my home and depend on my family to lift me up and down the stairs. I want to lessen the burden on my family and be able to be more independent in my own home.

If you can contribute to my campaign, I would be most grateful. I am looking to raise $29,000 USD. Here is the breakdown of what I’m fundraising for:

- Elevator Cost
